Copy the relevant settings from ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc 
to /etc/kde3/kioslaverc (paths are for Debian, may be slightly different on 
other distributions). You can prevent users from overriding settings by 
adding [$i] after the key or group name. See http://kde.org/areas/sysadmin/ 
for more information, especially 

It may also be possible to do this with kiosktool.

For Mozilla, copy settings from ~/.mozilla/default/*/prefs.js (or 
~/.mozilla/firefox/*/prefs.js to /etc/mozilla/prefs.js.
http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#prefs may be helpful.
